Seems like I will have to buy the program for windows as the zip decoder that comes with XP will not work with tar

I found two freeware programs that might support tar:

If someone tests and finds out, please post.

if it is a .tar.gz does winzip recognize it? I dont have a pc here, or I would try it.

PowerArchiver is an alternative that handles .tar .tar.gz and .tar.bz2.

If you are ok with a command line, install CygWin on your Windows box and you can actually use "tar" and "gzip" ;-)

Winzip does support .tar, I just installed it yesterday. :)

Previously I used an old version of Netzip which I found does not apparently support .tar.

While browsing around, I found a mention of Easyzip, freeware that supports .tar.

WinAce handles all these, so does WinZip and WinRar, they are not freeware but have no limitations whatsoever in the nonregistered versions
